As with all state institutions of higher education, the procedures and criteria for admission used by The University of Texas at Dallas are effective as of the publication date of this catalog but are subject to change by actions of the Texas Legislature or the Board of Regents.
To apply to UT Dallas, all students should submit an admissions application, applying on the Web at http://www.applytexas.org/. Applicants are required to submit copies of relevant past academic transcripts, test scores and other degree specific documentation by application deadlines to be considered for admission to The University of Texas at Dallas.
Official transcripts in sealed envelopes may be delivered to Hoblitzelle Hall, or may be mailed directly from the educational institution. Official transcripts sent directly from each educational institution attended must be postmarked no later than Census Day of the semester for which the student first registers. Students who do not meet this deadline will not be permitted to register in subsequent semesters or to receive UT Dallas transcripts until the official transcripts are received. All materials submitted in the process of making application become the property of the university and will not be returned to the applicant.
All fees are non-refundable.
Note: International Students requesting an I-20 (F-1) or a DS-2019 (J1) are not eligible to begin their study at UTD during a 2nd 8 week session. Contact the International Student Services Office at (972)883-4189 for more information.
UTD encourages all students to apply as early as possible as it can take between 4 to 6 weeks to process an application. Applications received after the Priority Application deadline but before the Late Application deadline will still be processed; however, a decision may not be reached in time for students to avoid late registration. Incomplete applications after the documentation deadline will not be processed.
Last day to register for classes coincides with the last day to add class.
After receiving an admissions acknowledgement letter which includes their student ID, students may check http://www.utdallas.edu/whyutd/ to determine the status of their application and whether all required documents have been received. Students may also call the Office of Enrollment Services at (972)883-2270 to check the status of their applications.
Many of our students do not take the conventional path that leads straight from high school to a four-year college degree. The Comet Connection Program was specifically created to enable transfer students to blend their college experiences seamlessly - and without financial penalty. It offers a Guaranteed Tuition Program for four years through The UTD Plan. For more information or to receive an updated list of participating community colleges, contact one of our admissions counselors at Comet One-Stop (972-883-2270) or visit our web site at http://www.utdallas.edu/connect/.
